Motorbike enthusiasts are being urged to turn out in force for the 20th annual Mayor’s Appeal Motorbike Run next month.
Both borough mayor Barry Ayres and his deputy, Colin Manning, will be riding as pillion passengers during the fundraiser, which this year takes place on Saturday, November 15.
Around 200 riders took part in the 2013 event and organiser Richard Pike said: “Because this year is our 20th anniversary, we hope to see more riders there than ever to make it even more special.”
The run is held to raise food donations for the Lynn Foodbank and local elderly people.
Participants and supporters are asked to bring along items which would normally be found in a Christmas food hamper, such as festive puddings or mince pies, which will not go off before Christmas.
This year’s convoy will start from C&A Superbikes, at the Willows Business Park, Saddlebow, where a burger van will be set up, and will cover a 34 mile route, through Sutton Bridge and Wisbech, before returning to Lynn.
The run will finish at the Lynn Town Hall, where tea and coffee will be available.
As well as additional riders, organisers are also keen to attract as many people as possible to act as marshals along the route on the day. Meetings for marshals will be held at C&A Superbikes tomorrow and Sunday, both from 1pm.
Anyone interested in getting involved should phone Mr Pike on 07754 104377 or search for King’s Lynn Mayors Appeal Motorbike Run on Facebook for more details.
